Sarah Palin trashes dinner

Sarah Palin is trashing the White House Correspondents Association dinner, a change of heart from the days when she attended such gatherings in Washington.

"That #WHCD was pathetic," she tweeted Saturday evening. "The rest of America is out there working our asses off while these DC assclowns throw themselves a #nerdprom."

For the record, Palin attended - and apparently enjoyed - a big media dinner when she came to the winter dinner of the Gridiron in December 2009. The jobless rate then was 10 percent.

In April 2011, she attended DC parties associated with the White House Correspondents Association Dinner and apparently enjoyed it. The unemployment rate then was 9 percent.

The unemployment rate now is 7.6 percent.

Other than the juxtaposition of the dinner while Americans are working hard, Palin did not elaborate on her complaint about the dinner, during which the association awards scholarships to students and awards to journalists and heard jokes from Conan O'Brien and President Barack Obama.

Sarah Palin has been in meltdown mode since having to leave office in July 2009 because of a relationship with 17 year old Shawn Christy. http://shawnchristypoliticalprisoner.blogspot.com/2013/04/sarah-palin-announces-resignation-july.html

The biggest joke at the dinner was Obummer.
